    Steel your desktop for HBO's "Game of Thrones" with this free Windows 7 theme pack, specially designed for Lannister fans.

Steel your desktop for HBO's Game of Thrones, based on the first book in George R.R. Martin's popular and acclaimed fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. The denizens of King's Landing swagger and scheme throughout this Windows 7 desktop theme. Once a great warrior, Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) rules the Seven Kingdoms. His beautiful queen, Cersei (Lena Headey), is of the golden-haired and gold-rich Lannister family. Her twin brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a master swordsman and captain of the Kingsguard; their shrewd younger brother, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), has long gone underestimated. The drawn sword you hear is just part of the theme...or is it? No matter who wins the Iron Throne, these characters will take over your desktop.
